Our 2010 Pinot Noir is sourced from single block vineyard grapes planted from four Dijon clones from one of the oldest vineyards in Edna Valley. The vines are situated on steep slopes with maximum southern exposure in Edna Valley on 125 acres of ecologically friendly property. Owned and operated by Jean Pierre Wolff, the vineyard includes 37 acres of Pinot Noir. They are grafted on two different root stocks best suited to the specific soil conditions, sun and wind exposure.
“Ripe Bing cherry, red plum and strawberry fruit with hints of rose petal, black tea, anise/herb and oak spice. Supple and vibrant on the palate with a combination of tart and ripe red fruits and citrus balancing oak notes of coffee and spices. Delicious now and will do well over the next 6-8 years.”
Tim Gaiser- Master Sommelier
"Classic Pinot nose... black cherry, cedar and cola. Complex palate with layers of fruit, peach and spice. Great structure and firm finish. Delicious."
